      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Try this instead of the search function here.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go to Google in a separate browser window, type in site:modelcarsmag.com, a space, and the the topic you're looking for.

Example: site:modelcarsmag.com alclad

Much more relevant results.

The search function here is kind of hit and miss. Bill's suggestion works.

The search feature is terrible!

It don't like short word/number searches

I tried to get the dedicated Google search thingee, but they wanted $$$ for it.

Will see if they have alternatives now.

Glad it worked better for you.

Just for the record, another modeler on here posted it first, but I don't know who.

It wasn't my idea, but it works so well I've tried to spread it around whenever someone needs search help.

The search function ignores numbers and any words shorter than four letters. If it did, and someone searched for "it", "is", "and" etc I'm sure the search function would go haywire. :huh:
